Scary stuff..

But I don't think it's controversial here.. they do it all the time in team competitions. Look at this Fed Cup pic:



All of them are doing the hand sign.

Must be some serbian celebratory thing as Ana did it when Novak dedicated the trophy to Serbia.

it's not a military victory sign. it's considered a serbian greeting in general and pretty much all people in serbia seem to use it. you can definitely see pretty much all serbian athletes using this greeting. of course, that means that soldiers use it as well, but the greeting is not strictly theirs.

as for croats starting a riot, some of them would start a riot at dislpays of anything serbian serbian and croatian diaspora in australia doesn't inspire much trust, to be honest. i know they often use openly fascist symbols.

some austrian journos tried to stir controversy a few weeks ago when a player of serbian origin used the same greeting after scoring a goal in a league game. they claimed that the use of this greeting regularly causes outrage, which is funny because i remember seeing a caption for a picture with the same greeting on the fifa website, for example, without any trace of outrage. the club supported the player, though, so the attempt to stir shit up eventually failed.

Like I said it's the hand sign for victory

I thought it was a military only sign but I see it is used in wider Serbian culture I know Ana would never do anything that ignorant she is too much of an

Re: Ana Ivanovic Pictures Thread vol.2

well, i don't know if it's a victory sign since people use it all of the time, not only at sports events. plus, the sign for victory is still a "v", 2 fingers lifted.

here are some other serbian athletes doing the same sign.



milos teodosic



milorad cavic

these are just the ones that came to my mind first.

to be fair, suggesting that ana might have been doing something controversial is a sign of a bit too much of ignorance. given ana's record everyone should conclude that the sign must be something else other than a military symbol. and when you look at the article cocco posted, it got popular with the anti-regime opposition in serbia and it seems to be an equivalent of waving a serbian flag - it is used at sports and political events. there is nothing bad about it.

I know there is nothing bad about it.. I just don't think there is need for name calling.
